Firstgear Rush Mesh Jacket
Thank you for selling Tall sizes!
Picked this up as my first motorcycle jacket. So far it's been great. Solid airflow (could be a hair better), removable liner is convenient, Hi Viz matches my Exo-1100 Jag perfectly, and I can't be any more thankful for tall sizes. The style is nice, visible but not ridiculous. Won't hesitate to get some firstgear stuff again. And as always, Revzilla is an A++++ in my book.

Best warm weather jacket for the money.
I just completed a 1000 mile ride in this jacket through 100° desert and 50° mountain temperatures. I even encountered some light rain. This jacket was perfect. In the heat I hardly broke a sweat. In the cooler temps the removable liner kept me warm and dry. I highly recommend this jacket.

Have been pleased with this purchase. It fits well and allows plenty of air flow for hot days. The liner looks like it would work fine, but I just carry a Frog Toggs jacket that fits over it in case of a shower. I find the snaps at the wrist end of the sleeves to be a little awkward to snap, but it is getting easier. All in all, this jacket seems a very good value given the relatively low price. Additionally, I have received very good service over the years from all of the First Gear products I have owned.

It does its job.
Took a soil going about forty - jacket held up very nice, no damage to my skin.
Cons- padding/protection seems a biiiiiit loose, not too bad. In reality, very few jackets fit like a glove.
Pros - price, airflow, durability.
I'm 5'10" 180 pounds, athletic body type.

Good with reservations
This is a well made jacket. But the arm length is shorter than advertised. I measure 37 inch arm length and a 2XT is listed as 38 inches but it is an inch too short. I removed the shoulder armor also to try and get a little extra hang from the shoulders . It is a warm weather jacket so I will keep it. I recommend this jacket if you remember a 2XT has about a 36 inch arm length.

Great Mesh Jacket
Living in Florida means riding in Heat.....
I've used First Gear equipment for many years, this is the first of their garments, "What took me so long?"
This is a great compromise between protection and ventilation, leaning more toward protection. The fit is right on with the chart.
I only have one minor quibble: The sleeves are not quite long enough for me, to get longer sleeves I would have had to get a bigger jacket. All the rest of the fit is perfect.

Nice Jacket at a good price.
I think this was just what I was looking for in a lightweight summer jacket with decent protection. The style is nice and the fit worked for me. I am 6'4" 180# and the large tall fit just right. I am always worried the arm length will be too short for my long reach, but not a problem with this jacket. Definitely a good value at this price. I would recommend it to others.

Great for Casual Summer Rides
Nice jacket, very breathable mesh for those hot days. Good liner too that helps bring it into those fall and spring days. I liked the pockets and zippers (they all work well i.e. don't get stuck or feel cheap) and the reflective strips. Not super protective but the shoulder armor and back pad make you feel like you are making an effort to be safe. Fits well according to the sizing guide too.
